About george gaffga

I am a retired Presbyterian pastor living in Colorado. My wife, Gigi and I are married 46 years. As an ordinary guy my life has been graced by God in many ways. My wife and I have three grown children and five grandchildren. I am trying to live with Christ day to day and though I sometimes fail miserably I am not giving up because God hasn't given up on me. I volunteer in a local library and lead worship at Life Care Center nearby. I play some guitar, write music and have written a couple of devotional books that were best sellers in my local church. So journey with me in these writings and let's see what this life with Jesus is all about. I am working on a new book currently.

PLACES IN GOD’S HEART

I am wondering why some Christians, supported by denominational doctrines, and certain biblical passages, want there to be a hell of eternal torment. Is it for justice or perhaps revenge? Like ‘they’ get what’s coming to them for not believing … Continue reading

WANTED: A MORAL COMPASS

Is there anyone out there who knows how to point our nation to a true moral north? We seem to have lost our way. When all we care about is ‘self’ and ‘winning’ we have entered through the wide gate … Continue reading
